INTEREST IN GOAT SHOW
Active Preparations Are Under Way
For Large Exhibit In
The Ancora coat breeders of Polk
county are already making prepara
tions for the Annual Goat Show to be
held in Dallas early in the coming
year. The date of the show has not
yet been fixed, but it is generally
agreed that the animals should not be
placed on exhibition until they are in
full fleece probably not until the
middle of January. The interest
already shown In the coming exhibit
by prominent breeders in all parts of
Oregon gives assurance that the 1904
show will be bigger and better than
any that has been held heretofore.
Dallas is recognized as the goat
center of the Pacific Northwest, and
the show held here each year attracts
hundreds of visitors. Goats are
brought to Dallas for exhibition from
all parts of Oregon, and breeders of
these splendid little animals come
from Washington, California and
other neighboring states to replenish
their herds and to discuss matters of
importance in this profitable branch
of stock raising.
A proposed feature of the coming
show that will commend itself to all
growers is the auction sale of blooded
stock to be held in connection with the
exhibit. Prominent breeders say that
they are willing to offer some of their
finest animals for sale at publio auc
tion in the hope that the standard of
the flocks throughout the Northwest
may be raised thereby. These men
have the interest of the goat industry
at heart, and are willing to part with
some of their best animals without
consideration of their actual value,
knowing full well that with the better
ment of the herds the goat industry
will become more and more profitable
as the years go by. None but the
highest bred animals will be offered
at this sale, and breeders will not be
allowed to run in a lot of inferior
stock just in order to get rid of what
they do not wish to keep.
The date of the show will be an
nounced in a few weeks, and every
goat breeder in the Northwest will be
invited to take part in the exhibit.
Eugene Cattron, of Wasco, visited
relatives in Monmouth last week.
J. M. Bunn and G. F. Cooper,
prominent goat breeders of North
Yamhill, Were in the city Thanks
giving Day, and purchased two pure
bred Angora bucks of U. S. Grant.
A change in the arrangement of the
stock in the Bee Hive store gives
much better facilities for displaying
and handling goods than the firm
has had heretofore. The dress goods
department has been transferred to
the west side of the room, and the
shelves thus emptied have been filled
with men's and women's furnishing
goods. The clothing department has
been moved to the ground' floor, and
the cloak and Jacket department has
taken its 'place in the gallery. The
men's shoes have also been moved
upstairs. Manager Finseth is con
stantly increasing his stock, and is
kept busy devising ways and means
of displaying goods to the best ad

BOYS MAKE GOOD MUSIC
Dallas Juvenile Band Appears in, pub
lic and Creates Much Enthut
The Juvenile brass band recently
organized in Dallas made its first
publio appearance Saturday after
noon. The boys marched to the
courthouse square, and, favored the
people on Main street with two selec
tions, and then went out to the foot
ball field in South Dallas and played
during the frame between the Dallas
and Independence teams. Their music
was a surprise to, everyone, as they
had been rehearsing but a short time,
and many of the boys had never
attempted to play a horn until two or
three weeks ago. The lads were
roundly applauded at the close of
each selection, and many complimen
tary remarks were heard for the
rapid progress they are making.
On the evening of December 5, the
band will give an old-fashioned basket
sociaHn the City Hall. A good pro
gram will be rendered, and baskets
containing lunch will be sold at auc
tion. The entertainment will be free,
and the money derived from the sale
of baskets will be used in purchasing
new music and for Incidental ex
penses. The people of Dallas are
proud of the boys' band, and will
liberally patronize the entertainment

PLAYED CLOSE GAME
Dallas and Independence
Teams Met on Gridiron
Football teara3 from some of the
greatest universities and colleges in
the United States met on the gridiron
last Saturday, but it is doubtful if
any of these games were more lively
or closely-contested than the game
between the Dallas and Independence
elevens in this city. Both teams were
composed of youths ranging in age
from 16 to 20 years, and the respective
sides were so evenly matched In size
that it would have required the eye of
an expert to detect any difference be
tween them. Twenty-minute halves
were played, or were to have been
played, and neither side was able to
score. It was not until the 24th
minute of the second half that a touch
down was made by the Independence
team. Dallas had made a mistake in
its signals, and a Dallas boy who had
received the ball was looking hope
lessly about for the player to whom
he was to pass it, when an obliging
Independence lad ran up and took it
from his hands and carried it across
the eoal line. Just why the time
keeper, a Dallas boy, did not call the
game at the end of the twenty minutes
is not known. The players say it was
the time-keeper's fault, and the time
keeper says it was the players' fault,
and, as the Obsebveb doesn't care a
rap whose fault it was, we haven't
taken time to Investigate. The play
ers on both sides conducted themselves
in a gentlemanly manner, and the
best of feeling prevailed throughout
the game. There is talk of a return
game at either Independence or Mon
mouth tomorrow afternoon,
